Tailored Health Coaching- applied to Chronic Pain

At Peak Health Coaching we first learnt to use health coaching in our roles as GPs with special interest in pain management. We have over 10 years of collective experience working in the pain clinic, and much more supporting people living with pain, in primary care alongside health coaches. We learnt first-hand how important coaching approaches are to supporting people self-manage well, whilst living with chronic pain. People that understand and accept their condition and learn to take control, do best. This course brings all that experience to focus on how prescribing clinicians and health coaches can work in partnership to achieve great outcomes for people living with pain.

Objectives of the Programme and what to expect

Participants in this programme will learn how to apply a new approach to chronic pain management as a team. We offer a first half-day for all health, social and community care professionals, followed by a different follow-on half-day, depending on your main role. This enables everyone to maximise their skill set and impact, working in a coordinated and collaborative way. Our experience shows working in this way is both effective and satisfying for staff and patients. We help transform a distressing and debilitating condition into a journey of hope and recovery.

The Pain Programme for Teams - overview

We recognise the value of training colleagues from diverse backgrounds together, as well as understanding the need to pay attention to each professional's specific learning needs. We have therefore developed a programme that does all of this. From experience and feedback, we draw on what is essential for everyone to know in the first half-day session and then follow this up with a second half-day session, which is more role specific. Our programme includes time between the sessions, for colleagues to practice their skills, in the real-world settings, of their current context.
